How To Make linda's messed up chicken

  • 1
    prepare chicken breast by rinsing, leaving skin on. Put the three large chicken breast in cold water and cook on top of stove in a large pan for at least 35 minutes. Make sure that the breast are done and not pink inside.
  • 2
    Once Chicken Breast have cooked. Rinse the breast and de-bone and remove skin. "Caution" chicken breast will be hot, so run cold water as you de-bone and remove skin.
  • 3
    Shred chicken and layer in a 9" x 13" casserole dish. Cover the bottom of the lightly greased casserole dish.
  • 4
    Top chicken with two cans cream of mushroom soup, spread evenly over the shredded chicken.
  • 5
    Buy one Block of Velveeta Mexican Flavor Cheese. with a cheese slicer, slice four slices of Velveeta. Placing the Cheese until all ingredients are covered. I use 4 slices about 1/8 in thick. You may add more cheese if desired to taste.
  • 6
    Take the one Bag of Taco Flavored Chips and Crush lightly (in the bag). Then take the bag and spread evenly over the casserole mixture.
  • 7
    Bake in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes. During the last 15 minutes (cover the top of the casserole with aluminum foil to prevent from over cooking chips. I would place the casserole dish on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over, not making a mess out of your oven.

    I prepare a simple lettuce salad to serve with the Casserole that and Bread and Butter slices. Enjoy
